Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss-Touch of Toffee Review, Swatches

Hi everyone!

Nude gloss/ lip color is a staple in any makeup lover’s vanity. I have been on the lookout for the perfect nude gloss for a long time. The problem with nude color is, it varies a lot depending upon the complexion and lip pigmentation. The SAs would keep handing me dark browns, light browns or even light pinks, which totally didn’t suit me. I stumbled upon this baby by chance while shopping with my sister and boy, am I glad that I did!

My experience:
The lip gloss comes in an ordinary plastic tube which is light weight and sturdy enough to carry in your handbag. It comes with a regular doe-foot applicator, which does a satisfactory job of applying the gloss evenly.

The lip gloss itself is lightweight and non sticky, but a little thick. It has a mild fruity fragrance, which disappears within a minute of application, and is not much of a problem. It contains fine silver shimmer which doesn’t feel gritty at all. It’s not completely opaque and may require 2 swipes to cover up mild pigmentation of the lips. The gloss lasts for about 2.5-3hrs without any meals, and around 2hrs with light snacks in between. It leaves behind some shimmer on the lips after fading which is something I am not too fond of. Other than that, I totally dig this shade. I reach out for this frequently these days whenever I do a ‘classic nude lips with heavy kohled eyes’ look.

  •  Sturdy packaging

The bad-

  •  Has mild fragrance

  •  May not suit heavily pigmented lips

Bare lips:
Rating- 4/5 (minus one point for the last 2 cons)

Final verdict- It looks perfect with dark eye makeup and can also be used over lip color to jazz it up. Try it if you don’t mind shimmer in your lip gloss and if your lips are not heavily pigmented.
